Doctor Who: The Next Doctor LIVE television SPECIAL to air THIS SUNDAY on BBC America, Space Channel in Canada, BBC One in the UK, and ABCTV in Australia!

Post last updated Sunday, August 4 at 11:05am EDT

The next Doctor of BBC AMERICA’s hit series Doctor Who will be announced during a live television special this Sunday, August 4!

BBC One (UK) at 7:00pm BST

BBC America (US) at 2:00pm EDT, 1:00pm CDT, 12:00pm MDT, 11:00am PDT

Space (Canada) at 2:00pm ET, 11:00am PT

ABCTV (Australia) at Monday 5 August 4am AEST

Livestreams: only BBC One and ABCTV have announced internet streams of the event.

Widely regarded as one of the most hotly contested roles in British television, the special’s host Zoe Ball will unveil the Twelfth Doctor in the first ever interview in front of a live studio audience.

The half hour show will include live special guests, Doctors old and new, as well as companions and celebrity fans. Current Doctor Matt Smith and lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat will both give interviews in the special.

Steven Moffat says: “The decision is made and the time has come to reveal who’s taking over the TARDIS. For the last of the Time Lords, the clock is striking twelve.”

Matt Smith will make his penultimate appearance in the 50th Anniversary special on Saturday, November 23 and his Eleventh Doctor will regenerate in the Christmas Special.

Because this show was a secret until today, most local TV listings have yet to be updated. This may change by end of day Saturday. If you’re looking to program your DVR, you should consider programming it manually.

There is no news of livestreams or simulcasts in other countries besides the ones listed at the top of this post. If anything changes, we will update this blog.

You’ll also find all of the latest news on this blog as well as the BBC Doctor Who site, DoctorWho.tv, Anglophenia Blog, the Doctor Who Facebook page, and the @BBCDoctorWho and @DoctorWho_BBCA accounts on Twitter.

The theme from now through Sunday is now #Who Is 12.

We’ll be blogging all day and night about this from now until Sunday and then livetumbling the Doctor Who: The Next Doctor special live. (We’ll use the tag ‘dw spoilers’.)

30DoSBDW Day 07: If you could have your memory erased of any Doctor Who episode so you could watch it again like it was brand new, which one would it be & why?
You are here because you want to participate in the 30 Days of Summer Break Doctor Who Meme and we are talking to you because you want to participate. When you have finished reading this post, you will have to make a choice, to have your memory erased of just one Doctor Who episode that you loved so much that you can watch it again like it was brand new.
But there are consequences for you all. You must tell us which episode you chose and why. And you must do it by creating a new post to your blog and tagging it 30 Days of Summer Break Doctor Who. May Moffat have mercy on our souls.
